[INDOLOGY] Misunderstood origins

Dear Artur,

Geoffrey Samuel (*The Origins of Yoga and Tantra*. *Indic Religions to the
Thirteenth Century*. Cambridge etc: Cambridge University Press, 2008)
independently from Bronkhorst arrived at a historical narrative that is
similar to the one told in “Greater Magadha”. Moreover, the chapter on the
early history of Karma and rebirth in South Asia by Wilhelm Halbfass (*Karma
und Wiedergeburt im indischen Denken*. Kreuzlingen, München: Hugendubel,
2000, pp. 37-63), which draws upon a considerable amount of earlier primary
sources and secondary literature, can be read as supporting important
aspects of Bronkhorst’s “Greater Magadha Hypothesis”.



Best, Philipp
